>>> VIDEO: IGM survivor and sex therapist Dr. Tiger Devore talks Intersex Genital Mutilation Type 1: ‘Masculinising Genital Corrections’: ‘Hypospadias Repair’ in this four part interview on a serious huma rights violation, and shares encounters at a paediatric congress where dedicated perpetrators meet.
Part 1 explains what IGM 1 and Hypospadias are all about, and how strikingly different unnecessary ‘clitoral reduction surgery’ (IGM 2) is discussed compared to unnecessary ‘hypospadias repair surgery’.
Filmed on occasion of nonviolent intersex protests vs. ‘6th I$HID Hypospadias Workshop’ with ‘Live surgery’, ‘5th I-D$D Symposium, and ‘1st D$Dnet Training School’.
Tiger Devore was one of the first survivors of IGM practices at all to speak out in public, and an excerpt (taken from the “STOP IGM Primer” (PDF)) of Tiger’s moving written personal testimony “Growning up in the surgical maelstrom” (1997) was recently quoted in a report “Human Rights and Intersex People” published by the Commissioner on Human Rights of the Council of Europe (COE).
StopIGM.org is proud to present this powerful interview series with Tiger talking truth to power. Parts 2-4 coming up soon …
